Book & Author Details:

The Monster’s Wife  by Samantha MacLeod
Published by: Vestal Valley Press
Publication date: February 26th 2019
Genres: Urban Fantasy, Romance

Saved by the monster!

Sol and her lover Fenris escaped the cruel king Nøkkyn and fled deep into the Ironwood. Yet life in the forest proves more perilous than Sol imagined. Is the handsome Týr, one of the Æsir from the myths of her childhood, a friend or a foe? How well does she actually know the mysterious man who saved her from Nøkkyn’s clutches?

And, even hidden beneath the shadows of the Ironwood forest, are Fenris and Sol truly safe from the King’s reach?


I should have known that the “Happy For Now” ending in book 1 was too good to be true.

This starts off in high spirits, but there is an ominous tone to the story that plays out in the cliffhanger ending.

As usual, the author has done a cracking job of making this feel like a much bigger story than the scant number of pages would imply.  Be prepared for a roller coaster with this one – just as dark as before.

I need to know what happens next!

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
